HillbillyJeeper I've been driving jeeps 20 years, just bought a new rubi and I still get that grin... That's just satisfaction oozing out.

Goldcomet Did You buy new? Great looking Jeep. We wound up buying new after shopping both. Everyone wants so much for used- even 60000-80000 mile ones it just doesn't seem worth it for how close the price is for a new one. We bought a 2013 JKU Sport 6sd.

H8_MUD This is the Jeep.

H8_MUD Went out shopping today and found exactly what I was looking for. As soon as I get home I'll post a picture. Now I need to make it mine but don't know where to start. It did come with a hard and soft top.

One thing I did learn from this is that all Wranglers drive and feel different.
07-04-2013 10:06 AM
H8_MUD Didn't get the Jeep...still shopping.

JeeperJake re: 303 303 Products 30350 Aerospace Protectant - 32 oz.:Amazon:Automotive

I hunted up a jug of this on strong recommendations from a thread here last summer.

Gotta say it's been a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!!!

While I'll use it up, I ain't buying any more of it.

I did a little compare post last fall on about 4 or 5 different products on what they'd done for my own JK.

So far, the stuff from 'Mothers' has been by far the best, but I ain't done shopping yet, and won't laud any of them. Except if they are a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT.

Some of them are just plain waste of time/money/effort.

I have the same regrets about not going Rubicon. Huge price difference between the bottom lines of the Rubi and the Sport, but it wouldn't have made that much more of a dent in my monthly payments!

Miser You want a Dana 44 rear diffrential. It will have a metal fill plug. If it has a rubber fill plug it is a Dana 35, which I do not recommend!

This is also good information for OP to consider- If you're buying used, you will also get a better price from private sales than from dealerships. I once bought a VERY clean Dodge Ram 1500 (SLT, with the extended cab AND the bigger 360 ci V8) with 65k miles on it for $6,500 in a private sale. That's 10 cents per mile! Dealer would've tried to charge around $20k for the same rig.

(Disclaimer: this was in the early fall of '08, when big eight cylinder engines were severely devalued because of a gas crisis.)

kreitz3 $15,500 is a much better price. Just follow the advice in this thread.

Lots of people swear by this stuff:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000XB...goods_img?vs=1

I haven't personally used it, but my door handles are starting to look a little less black so I think I'll be ordering a bottle.

To the OP: sorry for my rude bumper comments. I was just razzin' ya. If you buy that rig, you could probably recondition it with some Back to Black or similar product.

Still, I recommend saving up a little more and buying new. I've bought several vehicles with 65,000+ miles, and while I agree there is plenty of life left, major wear and tear issues tend to start popping up between 60-80k miles. If you can't afford to drop $5-8k more on a new model, you might end up paying even more than that if your rear end poops the bed and your transmission starts slipping. But hey, if around $15k is your absolute max budget, this seems like a decent deal.

4Jeepn Which rear axle does it have? Early 07's had the dana 35... vs the better dana 44.. again if you don't plan to go off road, not a big deal... other wise your looking at big bucks to upgrade. Also for what its worth.. for that same price range if you look around you can get a TJ rubicon model.

kjeeper10 What shocks ?

Rancho 9000's
My 07 is losing about a quart every 5K. I look at it this way.., always fresh oil on the case
Plus now my JK is not my DD.

super chief I see the tag says Baker , are you buying it from Baker in Princeton? If so they are great people. I have my Jeep serviced there and they are very knowledgeable about Wranglers. Their service manager builds some custom Jeeps which they sell at a premium on the lot. I would ask to have them walk you through this Jeep to review the add ons and specifics before buying. good luck.

always forward. PJ
